“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

We've just had a lovely 4 days at the Casablanca hotel. It is perfectly placed right beside Times Square and the staff are genuinely helpful and friendly. Nice to stay in a smaller more friendly hotel rather than the big anonymous ones. They had some great restaurant recommendations.
The complimentary wine and cheese in the lounge make a lovely start to an evening.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

We loved the location, the service, the food, the wine and the friendly, helpful staff. The room was both comfortable and attractive. It was the perfect place for our fun trip to NYC.

The location of the Casablanca was perfect for a first visit to Manhattan. For the first 2 days of our visit, we didn't need the subway because so many things we wanted to see were within walking distance. We thought the decor was really pretty and appreciated being able to eat breakfast on-site and get going early. Our room was on the 6th floor and there was never a problem with street noise (our room faced a brick wall). Although it was over 90 degrees during half of our stay, the window air conditioner, set to 72, worked perfectly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and would stay here again myself. We booked on the Casablanca website and chose the non-refundable, prepaid option which didn't make us at all nervous since we were certain we'd take the trip. This was the best rate I found (356.00)

We returned based on our previous stay in 2010 and never considered any other Hotel. The staff are exceptional, the location central and the service fantastic. The reception staff are to be commended, so are the staff assisting in the breakfast and the wine and cheese in the evening. We had an enjoyable visit and would return again based on this and our past stay. Ricks cafe and the all day coffee and snacks mean you can come back, have a recharge ans start again. Unfortunately, we didn't always do this as there is too much to experience. It was also great to have a coffee after the theater. Can't recommend this enough even though it means more people stay there!

I stayed here on business for 4 nights. The location is very good and the hotel was quiet and stress free. Free cheese and wine every evening but I never made it due to other commitments. Breakfast was very good continental and service was good. No full restaurant but there are literally hundreds on the doorstep. Overall a pleasant stay, made me feel like a tourist and not a business traveler.

Prior to arriving to New York I got a nice Welcome e-mail from the manager of the hotel. When I arrived, June 18, the service was impeccable, they upgraded me to a king size bed and called me after to ask me if everything was okay. I especially liked Rick's Cafe and the wine and cheese between 5-8. The staff was very accommodating to anyhting I needed. I will definetly be coming back to this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: I found the 4th floor to be quiet.

We stayed here in May for 3 nights with 2 children aged 9 & 11 and it was fantastic. Peter and the front desk staff (&steve) were so helpful, offering suggestions from restaurants to things to do with the kids. The hotel was very clean, very quiet and the beds were really comfortable. The happy hour(s) each day were a great time to have a drink, meet new people & chill out. Do yourself a favor and stay at this hotel - you won't be disappointed. Tony Di Napolis next door is a rela treat & very cheap. Times square is only 10 steps from the front door & when I go back to NYC I will book here without a second thought. Also Dial7 car service was very reliable & good rates - beats a taxi from the airport.
